Yale’s research echoes a sentiment many of us share – Zoom, the virtual meeting giant, just can’t capture the same magic as face-to-face conversations.

Joy Hirsch’s study unveiled the stark contrast: our brains dive into a slump during Zoom chats compared to the engagement of in-person interactions. The takeaway is clear: while Zoom is practical, it falls short of replacing the authentic social connections we thrive on.

Humans are inherently social beings, and our workplace environments need empathy, clarity and that genuine human touch for employees to truly thrive as their authentic selves at work.
